All,

Some of you guys have approached me about Ground Control units for your car. So now I'm starting an order thread. I need 10 takers to make this go through. If you can afford $359.10 USD + shipping then add your name to the list. I can assure you that $400-500 USD is not what I'll be selling these to you for. It will be much less, but I don't have concrete numbers on that just yet. So like I said, if you can afford the normal retail price you should get on board.

May want to get application and spring rate info, for example:

91 Toyota Celica GT Coupe - Koni Yellow struts - spring rates: front 8k, rear 4k

or are you saving that for when you have the 10 buyers?

I'm serious about getting a Ground Control Sleeve Kit on my car. Was planning on getting the kit for $400 (eBay) for my 5th gen and pairing them with some KYB AGX's. My plan was to buy them in the next two to three weeks. This is the first Group Purchase I've considered joining. Sorry for the noob questions in advance...

Your talking about the sleeve kits right?
What's your time frame?

Thanks

Yes.
There is no time frame until there is 10 people willing to engage in this.

I will give them to you for cheaper thatn $400, but you will need to be patient and let this process progress.

But seriously, this is what you looking for right? This will set you back $359.10 USD.

What is the NOPI price? I refuse to go to their site to find out.

Joey, once I get this group buy out of the way I'll be able to get everything GC sells. And they do sell those. If you need more details PM me.

I'd be paying you to buy these suckers at that price. But you're not in anyway, so.....


Is that the group buy price, or just what you're going to list them at after the group buy?

Both. They don't offer a huge reduction from MSRP. So I'm giving you 10% off. That way I can clear fees from paypal and credit cards. I guess you can get them cheaper, but you won't have the personalized service I offer. Even at a ~$30 difference I think people are crazy to go through those super sites like NOPI. God I hate NOPI. They subsidize the shit out of everything.

METDeath
12-04-2009, 10:38 PM

They either drop on, or you can remove the factory spring seat and weld on a washer at the same location as the spring seat. Or you can cut the shit out of the factory spring seat so you get the clearance that you would with the washer.

At least that's my understanding based on this. (http://www.celicatech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25499)


Oh, and $30 bucks difference isn't a deal killer, because I know that if I decide I want a different spring rate later down the road, I could do it very easily through you, and yet if I went to say Nopi, they'd simply say "What?". Hell, I'm not even sure they would ask you for spring rates and the like.

Oh, and I didn't see the ninja edits you did all over the place.

I had to grind on the rear strut when I still had GR-2s in the rear, the flare @ the top of the strut housing was too wide to clear the GC sleeve.

Trance4c
12-13-2009, 11:33 PM
Yep, the gland nut on the top of the struts are octagon shaped, the edges will have to be removed so the sleeve will go down the strut.

METDeath
12-14-2009, 12:40 AM
If you get Koni's on the front, they use a round gland nut, so the sleeves should just slip right on.

List of all the Toyota GC parts can be found here (http://www.ground-control-store.com/products/category.php/CA=89). Although, they only list the 4th gen All-trac... not sure on this, but if the springs from a 5th gen work on a 4th gen, you should be okay...

METDeath
12-23-2009, 03:44 PM
Grot, I asked CriScO while we were hanging out, and apparently 5th gen springs fit on 4th gens, they're just too long, so if you got the 5th gen kit, it would work, however, you wouldn't be able to go as low...

Kevin, no worries, I just figured I had beaten you to the response since I had a lot of free time on my hands yesterday.

Seeing that this GB is still going, I thought I'd ask some annoying questions.

Does anyone have photos of a Ground Control setup? Maybe photos will entice THREE more buyers.

From my understanding, you can just grind off the original spring perch and use the original top strut mount with a camber plate. Was everyone planning on doing this, or going with some sort of pillowball mount?

Finally, does anyone have a good usage for their sawed-off perch? Having a convenient disc-shaped metal object seems like a great idea to wing at the neighbors annoying dog when I'm in the garage.

You can custom order the spring rate. You can also tell them what dampers you're using along with what action they're going to see and they'll match the correct Eibach spring to your application. Even if you figure out what's up with those ones your friend found you might be putting the wrong springs on.....

I'm telling you that I don't know the spring rates and GC will help you decide what's best for you. I'm also trying to tell you that Ground Control Coilover systems don't come with some generic spring rate. That is why you have to call them.....they will ask you questions about your needs and then advise you on what to do. This makes the most sense anyway as you should know what you're putting on your Celica before you put it on. I have sent you a PM regarding the Konis. You can find the UN-shipped price for the GB in this thread as referenced elsewhere. Shipping cannot be determined until the groupbuy has been put through and the shipment comes to my office. They cannot me drop shipped. So.......unfortunately there is know way to know what shipping will cost to send 10 GC units to STL from LA.

He wanted to know who I was buying these from and basically ignored what I was asking. Sounded like he was having a bad day. His name was Dan, or Dennis.

I called, and told the rep I was supposed to contact him with some help on spring rates. He wanted know what I was ordering, and I said I was going through a dealer, and was told to call GC and ask them to help me select the correct spring for my application. He said I was better off going through him and placing the order over the phone. And I said I just wanted some help on spring rates. He then told me that if I ordered with him, that he could have it out next day and to me by monday and asked if that sounded like a good deal.

Getting really annoyed, I said that I am going through a third party, and just thought I could get help with spring rates. Then he wanted to know who I was going through, their name, their contact info, date of birth, location and he made it sound like I had ahold of classified information. So I told him, if he wanted to help me, he could have my name and number and get back to me, otherwise, I wasn't dealing with the nonsense.

He called me 5 hours later (I had forgotten) and demanded I order through him, because the entire thing was too suspicious. He was in sales mode, trying to make me feel wary and afraid that I might be getting scammed. I basically told him to go eat his socks, in the politest business sense. I don't like playing 20 questions when I have a simple customer service question.

I called, and told the rep I was supposed to contact him with some help on spring rates. He wanted know what I was ordering, and I said I was going through a dealer, and was told to call GC and ask them to help me select the correct spring for my application. He said I was better off going through him and placing the order over the phone. And I said I just wanted some help on spring rates. He then told me that if I ordered with him, that he could have it out next day and to me by monday and asked if that sounded like a good deal.

Getting really annoyed, I said that I am going through a third party, and just thought I could get help with spring rates. Then he wanted to know who I was going through, their name, their contact info, date of birth, location and he made it sound like I had ahold of classified information. So I told him, if he wanted to help me, he could have my name and number and get back to me, otherwise, I wasn't dealing with the nonsense.

He called me 5 hours later (I had forgotten) and demanded I order through him, because the entire thing was too suspicious. He was in sales mode, trying to make me feel wary and afraid that I might be getting scammed. I basically told him to go eat his socks, in the politest business sense. I don't like playing 20 questions when I have a simple customer service question.

Well, no kidding. They make more money when they sell it all themselves instead of giving a piece of the pie to a dealer. Come to think of it, I think I remember a similar story about GC from years ago. Hopefully thehy'll get back to me about the dealer account and we can move forward. If that doesn't happen neither will this group buy.

Could always pretend to order what you want, then after you get the info you need just hang up.

Haha, they'd catch on after the second call. He wanted my info up front to get an order started, and I'm not going to play games. I am pretty confident that I know the spring rate already based on what you guys have talked about anyways.

So, my understanding is that we need only one more person, maybe?

He probably got the same response, where the guy told him to buy only his set direct and then recommend us all to his extension.

I hope everything is alright...

Not quite. I emailed again asking if I was going to get a response. I have a felling the company is made up of shister fucks. I deal for about 25 suspension companies and none of them behave this way.

That is the angle I'd take on them. You want to work with them because you worth with so many others without issues. You'd think, given the economy, they'd be all over increasing sales and expanding customers. Good luck man, maybe they'll come to their senses.

I'm going to call one of my mega distributers where I know the owner. Perhaps he can shed some light on the issue.....I'm sure he's heard of them.

Not likely. GC won't respond to any of my contact. It's bullshit.

I got a sinking feeling when I talked to the asshat at GC. Time to lay this to rest? The effort has been appreciated!

If there is going to be another GB thread for the Megans, could you please start a new thread for it?

If the GC thing is not happening, I can lock this one up.

Best of luck to you all!

I think I may have an option for GCs. But first I need to know who would rather have GCs and who would rather have Megans. I'll split you off into separate groups. Don't worry about needing 10 buyers or any of that. This isn't a group buy anymore for GCs. I can take you guys one at a time.

I contacted another one of my suppliers that I realized carried GCs. I asked what my markdown was and I was told there wasn't one because they didn't get one from GC. They are one of the largest distributers west of the Mississippi and they seemed annoyed by that fact and as perplexed as I was while we conversed about Ground Control and how they run their business. Figures.

Nope. I'm not going to attempt to do business with those guys. Better to go it alone.
